If we didn't know better, we might not guess Kim wore this shimmery, cleavage-baring white number to get wild in Las Vegas in 2010 – since it's pretty much what she throws on to run to the market for milk on any given Tuesday night.

Behold, the human New Year's Eve ball! Fergie may be a pop star but her dress, clutch and shoes at last year's bash at Las Vegas's Mirage was pure heavy metal.

Leave it to Nicole (at a Las Vegas party in 2009) to make a sequin minidress look totally effortless and boho-chic. Extra points for wearing tights like the rest of us – hey, it's cold out there during the post-midnight cab hunt!

The good thing about a sparkly bandage dress like J. Lo's (worn to a 2010 Vegas bash)? You're guaranteed to get tons of male attention. The downside? It's going to be a lot tougher to load up on hors d'oeuvres and cocktails in a skintight dress like this one.
